Mapping and modeling of boreal forest change in TanDEM-X data with the two-level model
Paper in proceedings, 2017

In this paper, three approaches to forest change modeling with the two-level model (TLM) are compared by fitting the TLM to 12 VV-polarized TanDEM-X acquisitions over a hemi-boreal test site in southern Sweden. It is observed that the best inversion results are obtained when rapid forest change (e.g., harvesting) is modeled as change in canopy density, while growth is modeled as change in forest height.
